VERBAL: Marable goes black and orange

FAST. PLAYMAKER. DOES some amazing things with the ball. All things his prep coach says describe Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany running back Malcolm Marable -- who made a commitment and is headed to the orange and black.

Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany running back Malcolm Marable is going to the Pac-10 to play his college football.

The quick back committed to Oregon State on Friday, according to Alemany head coach Dean Herrington.

"Oregon State is getting not only a great player, but a great person," said Herrington.

Herrington has been a Marable fan for years.

"Malcolm has started on the Varsity for me since his freshmen year and he was First Team all-League as a freshman," said Herrington.

Herrington raved about Marable's playmaking ability.

"He does some great things with the ball in his hands," said Herrington. "He's the fastest player I've ever coached."

In 2008, Marable ran for 1,655 yards and 23 touchdowns, and added another touchdown through the air, helping the Warriors to the CIF-SS Semifinals.

He was named the Mission League MVP after helping lead Alemany to the Mission League title.
